The recovered bicycles range in size and colours including green, pink, purple, silver, black and white.

There are both women’s and men’s mountain bikes and one road bike.

Some have had their wheels and handle-bars removed but several have distinctive writing on the frame.

Anyone in the area who has lost a bike or had one stolen recently is asked to contact PC Chris Anthony on 101 to try to identify their bicycle.

Residents are being asked to ensure all outbuildings are secure and expensive items are kept out of sight.

If you have information about thefts of bikes or anyone acting suspiciously in the Alfreton, Somercotes and Leabrooks areas contact Derbyshire police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
